Fuencarral is a recently remodeled pedestrian street that has become the hub of trendy and cutting-edge shops in Madrid. This lively commercial street is a must for shopping lovers.
Fuencarralis a modern and vibrant area, due in some part by the proximity and influence of Chueca, where a large gay community was established a couple of decades ago. They were responsible for the renovation of this once depressed neighborhood, where despite the predominantly gay atmosphere, all tendencies are welcome. Nowadays the lively and colorful neighborhood has plenty of shops, restaurants, and gay-friendly bars.
